“We are happy to give comic book fans the opportunity to try out our unique and magically engaging digital reading experience on their iPhone and iPad”, says Andy Mehlq, the creator of Pencil United.
The atmospheric nordic fantasy drama series “Northern Souls” follows the journey of a young man in finding his origin in Europe’s last wilderness, Swedish Lapland, in the year 1940. The tormented man can’t remember where he comes from. Intrusive voices in his head, possible signs of schizophrenia, call him “Mielat” and insist that he has a calling. The man is unexpectedly joined by a female German Red Cross doctor. Gradually it is revealed that this rational and determined woman, named Elke, has her own agenda but also that the fates of the two wanderers are intertwined in curious ways.
